A Taste of Chittering will make its return in 2020 as an all-weekend Spring celebration on October 17 and 18, with 10,000 visitors expected to enjoy an expanded Marketplace event at Nesci Estate.  The annual festival will celebrate the produce, wine and country lifestyle of the greater Chittering region during the stunning wildflower season.

Chittering is an easy 50-minute drive north-east of the Perth CBD, and boasts green rolling hills and valleys, fragrant citrus orchards and cattle and sheep grazing on valley slopes. Matthew Gilfellon, Chief Executive Officer of the Shire of Chittering says the event has been rebirthed to benefit the region.

“The whole weekend celebration will be hosted on a larger scale to enable us to attract more attention and visitors to Chittering,” he said.

A Taste of Chittering will bring the grounds of the picturesque Nesci Estate alive across the weekend with the Marketplace that showcases local producers. An impressive farmer’s market and local vendor market will be complimented by live music, food trucks, demonstrations and wine and beer tastings.

The all-ages event is the perfect family day out with attractions such as farm animals and marshmallow toasting for the kids. Exciting additional ticketed events such as a pop-up dining experience, electric bike tours around the Chittering region, chef Masterclasses, and a beer brewing competition will be announced soon.

Commencing at 10:00 am each day, the fully licensed event runs to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 3:00 pm on Sunday.

Admission includes a free fresh pressed juice, coffee, beer or wine for just $18 online or $20 at the gate (concession $10 and $12), with free entry available for children (under 18) and local Chittering residents.
